The salmon burger with potato wedges was delicious. The views are also beautiful. The ride on the gondola takes 5-10 minutes.

For a moment i cannot decide which is the better one, the food or the view... At the end, i think it is tje combination of both - great coffee and nice view... the moose patty was kinda oily and salty though.

Fjellstua is the perfect place to find the warmth again after walking outside on the ice filled mountainside. The service is friendly and the prices are not so insane as you could expect in Norway.

If you are visiting Tromsø, this place should be on your bucket list. Roundtrip is 170NOK. The food is overpriced, a soft drink is over 40NOK, which is hilariously expensive. Anyways, I would highly recommend this place - the view is amazing!

We have 8 steps on the lower-station, but it is impossible to use the wheelschair-door without steps. At the upperstation - we have a wheelchair-lift. So, we dont have steps - if you have problem with steps..
